If you have been trying to avoid MySpace but couldn’t just do it because you have accumulated too many contacts in your profile that you don’t want to lose, well soon, you just might ban MySpace from your online life for good. MySpace is set to launch a new feature, albeit an annoying one; MySpace Karaoke.
This could probably be the worst application ever to hit MySpace, not because it is technologically flawed, but because it is definitely a feature that many would find annoying, including yours truly. To be launched on Tuesday, MySpace Karaoke will, heaven forbid, allow users to belt out their favorite songs, record their renditions and stick them up on their MySpace profile, so that their MySpace contacts can rate their performance, no matter how awfully good or bad those performances are.
With a microphone, MySpace users who have the guts can choose from around 2,000 to 3,000 songs that are currently available in MySpace Karaoke and start annoying the wits out of their MySpace contacts. According to MySpace, these song selections are all copyrighted materials, so users would not have to worry about infringing on copyrights when recording their versions of Beyonce’s Irresistable, or Incubus’ Love Hurts.
The application can be accessed at ksolo.myspace.com, but thank goodness when I was trying to access the site a message prompted me that the feature is not applicable in my region. I must be having a lucky day!
